Katie Bahain-Steenman and Julien Bahain are both highly experienced rowers who competed at the international, Olympic level. When they moved to the West Coast in 2014, they did not know what to expect. They found paradise on earth, a place to live in nature and on the water. The Gulf Islands made them fall in love with this part of the world.. They now live on Piers Island, an island only accessible by private boats, with their two children. They love sharing their passion for rowing and a life filled with adventures.
